10 Developments since Lac-Mégantic In cooperation with its members, the RAC worked with Transport Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to formalize information sharing between railways and municipalities (PD 32). Remains in effect for 3 years and requires: Canadian Class 1 railways must provide municipalities with yearly aggregate information, presented by quarter, on the nature and volume of dangerous goods the company transports by rail through that municipality; and Non-Class 1 Canadian Class 1 railways must provide municipalities with yearly aggregate information on the nature and volume of dangerous goods transported through that municipality and notify municipalities of any significant changes to that information, as soon as possible. All Information Is Proprietary & Confidential 10 Toute 16/07/2014

15 Community Planning / Design Trespass Safety Generally, Communities have grown around railway property Development design in proximity to railways has been poor Trespassing on Railway property is prohibited by law Access for residents across railways is often not considered Relocation of railways from city core is difficult and expensive Consider shippers, customers and trans loading sites Railway Relocation Act (TC)

16 Community Planning / Design Grade Crossing Safety Rail Traffic expanding with longer trains becoming the norm Longer heavier trucks can be a danger navigating crossings Community designers need to look closely at potential crossing delays, capacity, dimensional loads and emergency vehicle access New Railway Roadway Grade Crossing Regulations (Gazette I) Look at crossing elimination / consolidation.

17 Incid 2013 Results Crossing and Trespassing Incidents Trespassing Incidents Crossing Incidents

18 A school s sports field abutting CN s Rivers subdivision in Winnipeg, MB. This public facility did not incorporate fencing or a safety berm between the railway and the field, creating a safety hazard. 7

19 Trespassing in Montreal, QC. Often the result of inadequate consideration of the railway s presence in the planning of adjacent neighborhoods.. 11

20 Aerial photo of Grand Prairie, AB. Red lines indicate frequent trespassing routes identified by CN Police. Residents living on the east side of CN s Grand Prairie subdivision are drawn by shops and facilities located on the west side of the rail corridor. 12
